This month on May 18 and 19 Peru will open the doors of several of its worldwide recognized museums for the public without charging visitors a penny (or Sol in this case). The government with this initiative, wants to promote the history of Peru to the general public and put some focus on the amazing history this South American country can look back on.
Among the many museums of Peru that have opened their doors to the public one can find the Museum of Archaeology, Anthropology and History of Peru, the Tombs of Sipan Museum, the ancient Chan Chan site and the pre Inca site of Pachacamac. On May 17 at 10am there will also be held an inauguration ceremony outside the Ministry of Culture building to celebrate and open this first International Museum Day in Peru.
So come and discover some of the many wonders of Peruvian history and enjoy the workshops and additional performances that will be taking place on both these days.
